I used to come here often when I lived in Newburyport and the food was consistently good. The service was great and the customers were friendly at the counter. There was a beautiful waitress that had the most amazing blue eyes. That was 25 years ago. I moved away from the area and stopped going. Today I was in the... More

average food -- not expensive -- not that good !!! Anyone can make a burger, coffee from the OLD fashion urn, cramped, a bit shabby -- but they have a following....but don't be a follower!

Was greeted prompt;y but limited seating & had to wait. Booth was comfortable, service was prompt & friendly, My wife's cheeseburger was done well & she enjoyed. My extra... More

With so much incredible competition for lunch cafes. It's my opinion not to have it here. However they serve breakfast all day...I'm sure it decent. CASH only operation. Fish had to be frozen previously, it was flavor less and dried out. Cole Slaw is bought prepared and just awful. Everything else was okay. Beauty of an old relic too bad... More

Hadn't been here for several (7-8) years. Decided to revisit yesterday and my breakfast was excellent. The food was awesome, the waitresses are very pleasant and this setting still Rings true to the diner experience of years gone by. I will be back soon

Just good old fashioned home style meals! The service is friendly and fast. Nothing fancy but good reliable food. Save room for dessert!

Breakfast, the way it should be. Properly prepared, delicious and quick. This restaurant isn't huge, but can get busy at peak times, especially weekend mornings. It's a real diner, and that real diner feel with waitresses who may not be old enough to be from the 50's but give that feel. The place has been around for 76 years for... More

Don't know if both my wife and I were born first or the Diner founded first but we love this Diner. The meals served here certainly meet the standards of an upscale local restaurant. Fast, friendly service and if you like a certain dish prepared "your way" then just request it from your waitress. Been eating here off and on... More
